3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear bronze/amber color with bubbles rising in the center toward a tw0-finger off-white head that lasts. Aroma is just as good as the appearance and as expected from an IPA: piney, grapefruit, lemon and some caramel. Body is light to medium with very lively carbonation. Taste is bitter with some sweetness in the middle. Seems like more than 5% ABV to me. Despite the hype on the bottle, this one exceeded my expectations: drinks like a lager but with the flavor of an IPA.

Fruity aroma, hop, grass, caramel and malt. White lacing galore. Clear yellow-gold color. Thin body and fairly dry. Actually, it is quite dry. Not boozy at all. Strong lager? W

Another nice SA entry. Copper pour with a frothy head. Aroma is pine to me. The taste is well balanced with malt and hops.
